Default exit re entry travel on Bus visa - 30 days advice Saudi

Hi Guys
I have multi entry bus visa, can anyone shed a little light. Did my 1st trip to Bahrain on 28th July as stamped. So am I right in thinking I have to leave Saudi again no later than 30 days from this point on 27/08, or can I wait up till month end?
Any advice appreciated thanks!

I'm pretty sure it is actually 28 days on a business visa (if my memory serves me right) which would mean you need to leave on or before Wednesday 25 August ...

By the way, your PRO should be telling you this stuff as it is his problem if you over-stay! And no there is no such as thing as a few days buffer in this matter. The fine for over-stay is pretty hefty if I remember correctly...and they might struggle to renew as well..

one month is one hijri month, not gregorian - makes a diff of a couple of days in some instances

Duration is whatever the Business visa says on the paste in your passport has - my UK issued KSA business visa is for 30 days.

However, I play safe and never stay longer than 28 days, over-nighting outside before returning.

Weird - all of my three month visas, and most of my six month ones, have been 14 days.

You really, really do not want to over-stay. I speak from experience, albeit not mine.

It seems to depend where you get them!

In Dubai they were giving 3 month validity, 14 day stay Business Visas. However, in the UK they give 6 month validity, 30 day stay.

...so after a nice few months going to Dubai every other week end, I had to start applying through the UK.

That's what I'm saying - my latest Dubai visas are 6 month, 14 days...
